Hello- Progressive age decreases the number of ovum in a female and might reduces the chances of pregnancy, more over first pregnancy after the age of thirty might arise complications for both mother and the child, this is why girls marry early. However with Garbhasansakar and panchakarma treatment of ayurveda your friend can marry and can get pregnant easily. Consult if interested.

I smoke daily. Does smoking prevent my pregnancy? Does I need to quit smoking in order to get pregnant?
Smoking is not good before or during pregnancy, so ideally you should quit smoking as its harmful for the baby, also if you are smoking it sometimes is difficult to get pregnant.

Advise is ask her and her husband together to consult doctor. We need to take some history from both, check both of them and advise few tests to detect the cause, Then we will start treatment of that cause.

Causes and Treatment for Nighttime Itching!

MBBS
General Physician,
Causes and Treatment for Nighttime Itching!

Have you ever been all comfy and settled in bed only to feel a little itch? You give it a rub or scratch, and before you are content, the sensation returns. So you scratch it again and again as the itching grows and becomes a nuisance.

This is nighttime itching. We scratch a small itch maybe a dozen times a day unconsciously, but how serious is it when you develop itching at night? It may be a temporary reaction to a number of mild causes, or it may a signal an underlying health issue. We will uncover nighttime itching remedies and ways to prevent reoccurrences.

What Causes Nighttime Itching?

Pruritus is the itching of the skin. As with many conditions and illnesses, it seems to become worse at night. You may think it is dry skin, especially if it occurs mainly in the cold winter months when the skin becomes more susceptible due to the lack of moisture in the air. Or you may attribute it to your laundry detergent, new body soap, parasites, or even stress. Before you rush to the doctor or pharmacy to grab a bottle of lotion, let’s take a look at what causes itching at night.

1. Bed Clothes and Linen

Your personal items could be causing your nighttime itching due to irritants and even parasites. Changes in your body processes can cause you to develop an allergen to laundry soaps, body soaps, and shampoos, even if you have been using the same brand for years with no negative reactions. It could also be associated with a dust mite allergy. A change in your system can also impact the tolerance of certain components of your jewelry. Unfortunately, you could also have an infestation of bedbugs, fleas, or other insects.

2. Decreased Stimulation

As we sleep, our energy and stimulus levels decrease, which may make us more conscious of issues such as itchiness, even the most mild of the condition. If you suffer from a severe skin condition, it can disturb your sleep cycle to the point of waking you up in the night. Without a proper REM cycle, you can experience changes in mood and physical symptoms.

3. Internal Clock

Your internal clock, also known as circadian rhythm, refers to the biological processes your body goes through over a 24-hour period. These physical, mental, and behavioral changes in the system respond to your day (light) and night (dark) environments. Nocturnal itching episodes may be associated with these changes, although no definite factor has been identified.

  • Cytokine and prostaglandin can cause the itching sensation in an unbalanced circadian rhythm as these substances produced by cells affect inflammation outcome.
  • Skin temperature rises at night, which may stimulate the itch facilitator levels in our skin.
  • Corticosteroid body levels tend to decrease at night, which increases symptoms of an inflammatory skin disorder.
  • Water loss through the skin intensifies at night time.
  • Parasympathetic activity is known as the “rest and digest” portion of our autonomic nervous system. In this state of normal control, your body is in a relaxed condition, and at night, it increases and may stimulate itching.
  • Natural pain-relieving catalysts in our system rise in response to the darkness with a damaged circadian rhythm. A lessened pain increases our sense of itchiness.
  • Aside from severe dry skin, several health disorders and diseases also have symptoms of dry, itchy skin that seem to be exacerbated at night. These conditions are atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, urticaria, lichen simplex chronicus, liver and kidney issues, and blood disorders. There are some sleep pattern disorders that can also cause nocturnal itching.

How to Treat Nighttime Itching?

You can try to resolve the nocturnal itching at home with several remedies and prevent a reoccurrence.

1. Soak at Night

Bathe in the evening to remove the day’s dead skin cells, dirt, and sweat. Keep in mind very hot water can irritate and dry out the skin. Use warm water and spend 15 minutes or less in the shower or bath.

2. Use Mild Soaps

Use unscented soaps, especially at night. Antibacterial and perfume-infused soaps can draw the moisture from your skin and cause itchiness.

3. Moisturize the Skin

Use a moisturizer created for dry skin conditions. Moisturizing after a bath or shower can help prevent itchiness as it replenishes the skin’s moisture.

4. Change the Sheets

Change your sheets frequently. If you cannot alternate bed linen daily, hang your bedding in direct sunlight to remove dust mites and any bacteria and dead skin cells.

5. Flip the Mattress

Use a mattress protector or flip mattress weekly as it may be home to millions of microscopic organisms. Replace the mattress when you can.

6. Call Pest Control

Have a pest control agent inspect for infestations. There may be an issue with bedbugs, body lice, fleas, or scabies mites. You can still feel the effects from these parasites without direct contact as they attach to clothing, linens, and mattresses.

7. Ventilate the Room

Sleep in a cool well-ventilated room. This will reduce body temperature and sweating, which can stimulate itchy dryness. Try keeping the bedroom heat down by opening a window, turning on a fan, or keeping the air conditioner on.

8. Use Lightweight Fabrics

Wear light cotton sleepwear and use light blankets. As your body temperature rises, so does the intensity of the itch.

When to Call a Doctor

If you have tried the aforementioned home remedies for nighttime itching with no relief, you may want to consult your doctor. Depending on the cause of your condition, you may be prescribed antihistamines to diminish itching or corticosteroids to reduce inflammation if itchiness is associated with a skin disorder.

You may need calcineurin inhibitors to suppress your immune system or even antidepressants. These will help in lessening the itch symptoms related to mental stress or psychogenic disorders.

Dry, itchy skin can be triggered by stimuli at night, which can interfere with your resting and sleeping times. There are various mild skin conditions that cause night itchiness as well as several health issues that should be addressed. Home remedies to counteract or prevent itchiness can be undertaken before calling a doctor. The answer may lie in your bedding, personal hygiene items, or even in the air you breathe. If all attempts fail, contact your doctor for guidance as it could be a hidden medical condition or a symptom of a related issue.

How Smoking is Harmful For Your Health?

MBBS, AFIH, PGDMLS, MD-HRM, MD-HM
General Physician, Gurgaon
How Smoking is Harmful For Your Health?

The risks and harms of smoking are pretty much common knowledge to most people. Especially when the pack of cigarettes practically screams it out to you in bold letters. Yet, as statistics would say, smoking in young adults has been on the rise in the recent years. What makes them take this step? Maybe it is peer pressure, or maybe they do it for the thrill of it. Every country takes a great initiative in educating their population, yet some fail to understand the complexity of the situation.

Here are some of the reasons that will tell you that even a single puff of the deadly tobacco can severely harm your health and general well-being

  1. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of cancer. It can cause cancer in most organs of the body. Smoking cigarettes can cause the following
    • Nose cancer
    • Throat cancer
    • Larynx cancer
    • Mouth cancer
    • Oesophageal cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Liver cancer
    • Cervix cancer
    • Stomach cancer
    • Kidney cancer
    • Colorectal cancer
    • Cervical cancer etc.
  2. Smokers are more prone to respiratory diseases because smoking is capable of compromising the immune system of the body.
  3. Autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to occur in smokers as their immune system is compromised by smoking.
  4. Smoking has been linked to diabetes type 2. This type of diabetes develops during adulthood. The more cigarettes a person smokes, the more likely is the person to develop this disease.
  5. Smoking puts you at risk of developing several heart diseases such as angina, heart attacks, etc. because the nicotine in the body results in the lowering of good cholesterol. This causes deposition of bad cholesterol in the arteries.
  6. Tobacco can cause tooth decay and several other oral problems such as gingivitis and other problems of the gum.
  7. Cigarettes constrict your blood vessels. This constant narrowing of blood vessels can cause erectile dysfunction in men and leads to the infertility in both men and women. It also makes them difficult to achieve orgasms.
  8. You might find yourself craving for cigarettes when you’re stressed out. This is because the effect of nicotine in the cigarettes is lowered by the hormone produced during a stressful situation, i.e. cortisone.
  9. Nicotine that causes momentary central nervous system stimulation can cause addiction and dependence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Dear doctor: How many vaccinations are given during pregnancy? Which weeks they are given and for what?
Conventionally two doses of tetanus is given at 16 and 20 weeks of pregnancy respectively, but as far as current recommendation of Center for disease control goes one dose of Tdap vaccine is good enough if mother is immunized against tetanus in her childhood. Tdap usually given at about 30-32 weeks of pregnancy. Please discuss with your gynecologist in detail about both.

Dear Lybrate user. Definitely please don't force your wife for penetrative sex as well as oral sex at this moment. Women get irritated and stressed when men compel them for oral sex. They don't like oral sex at all. Instead, ask her to assist you masturbation, if you need to. Take care.

Hi, sexually transmitted infections (stis) can have a range of signs and symptoms, including no symptoms. That's why they may go unnoticed until complications occur or a partner is diagnosed. Signs and symptoms that might indicate an sti include: sores or bumps on the genitals or in the oral or rectal area painful or burning urination discharge from the penis unusual or odd-smelling vaginal discharge unusual vaginal bleeding pain during sex sore, swollen lymph nodes, particularly in the groin but sometimes more widespread lower abdominal pain fever rash over the trunk, hands or feet signs and symptoms may appear a few days after exposure, or it may take years before you have any noticeable problems, depending on the organism. Causes: sexually transmitted infections can be caused by: bacteria (gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia) parasites (trichomoniasis) viruses (human papillomavirus, genital herpes, hiv) sexual activity plays a role in spreading many other infectious agents, although it's possible to be infected without sexual contact. Examples include the hepatitis a, b and c viruses, shigella, and giardia intestinalis. Investigation/s: if your sexual history and current signs and symptoms suggest that you have an sti, laboratory tests can identify the cause and detect coinfections you might have contracted. Blood tests. Blood tests can confirm the diagnosis of hiv or later stages of syphilis. Urine samples. Some stis can be confirmed with a urine sample. Fluid samples. If you have active genital sores, testing fluid and samples from the sores may be done to diagnose the type of infection. Laboratory tests of material from a genital sore or discharge are used to diagnose some stis.

As pcos accounts for 75% of anovulatory infertility. Weight loss reduces hyperinsulinemia and subsequently hyperandrogenism, which in turn helps to increase fertility or conception rate. A healthy lifestyle is one of the most important aspects of managing pcos successfully. A healthy diet will ensure you are getting an adequate intake of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Also consult infertility specialist and go for the tests required.
